  1. This was so rehearsed because if you watch the mother while the daughter is speaking, you see her mouthing the exact same words. gtfoh! #fakenews

  2. This reminds me of public school junior high phys ed class in good ole Louisiana. Notice it is a bunch of happy black girls holding the white girl down tearing her muscles? Sue their you know whats ladies.

  3. MAn how much proof do folks need to know white folks crazy on every level … that black man gonna fry messing with dem white children

  4. If she could not do the split on her own, without help, after instructions and training, even if it is required to be part of the team, then she is eliminated from the team period, let her mother or father do that, you do not touch her, common sense do NOT touch these kids unless it is to save a life, unless you are nurse, doctor, medical field of some sort and only with another person present!! Do not touch anyone of these kids these especially these days, some parents are waiting for it, looking for a lawsuit. You might have the best intentions to train hard, to create an athlete but that person, that child has to have the ability and the will to do it on they own. That coach's world is upside down now. A lesson he will never forget.

  5. Why didn't these girls quit the sport/team after this happened the first time?

    I mean, cheerleading is not exactly an important activity. Why not picking another sport instead, like fencing or another type of dancing or gymnastics or horse riding or something.

  6. THIS is how the educational system is working ? Did the school even did a background check on the ''coach''? Clearly not fit to do his job, not fit to be in the educational system, and not fit to be a coach.And to everyone who wants to make this about race; it simply isn't.

  7. So Matt Goulet wants the black man to be murdered and/ or lynched by showing unstable racist white nationalists/ KKK where he can be found. Wow, Matt, do you know that now you are an accessory and co-conspirator to murderer and/ or grievous harm, if something were to happen to this coach. The problem with you Americans is that you have zero pain tolerance when it comes to sports, and very racist, when it comes to getting along with other races/ nationalities. You Americans are not built for suffering that is why other races like China, Russia and Korea will eat you for lunch.

  8. I understand the mom told school about this incident right after it happened. Why did she wait 2 months to release it to the media after the school didn't do anything. And still allowed her daughter to go back after she got injured… she should be held accountable also..

  9. Their was another video interviewing the coach and it showed how the girl volunteered to do the split exercise and when they were saying about how that she tore muscle but their is a video of her doing cartwheels the next day.
